To all those who read this...

I just today found out this...

Clan Ayla is my SWG PA.
_____________________________________________
Hello Clan Alya-

I have sad news that I wish I didn't have to report, but I have been given no choice. You have come to know my brother Shaun as "Rask Sar'Yek". I am devistated to inform you that Shaun and his Fiancee' were killed last night in a car accident. They were on their way up to Minnesota when they were hit head on by a drunk driver.

Shaun spoke of the clan often, and was very excited to start the game this winter. He was working hard to get my Twi'Lek character as an informant for your spynet, your clan should be proud of all he did.

He was a great brother and my best friend, he will be missed.

Best wishes to all of you

Austin Johnson "J'arcel"

_____________________________________________

His SWG Forum Handle was "ExplorerRask". He was very popular and well liked in our PA. I know he posted on the Dev forum as well. Many of the PA's that have wanted to contact us about alliances, interacted with him. He held our Spynet Directorship position.

Some Rask' quotes included:

IF YOU'RE A BOTHAN AND YOU KNOW IT SHOOT A JAWA,
IF YOU'RE A BOTHAN AND YOU KNOW IT SHOOT A JAWA,
IF YOU'RE A BOTHAN AND YOU KNOW IT, AND YOU'RE NOT AFRAID TO SHOW IT, IF YOU'RE A BOTHAN AND YOU KNOW IT SHOOT A JAWA!!!!!

And:

Help, I am being bullied by the Gammorean.
*GURGLE GURGLE*

He was a young man who moved to Iowa, from Minnisota. He was a Twins fan, and worked at a Soft Rock radio station as a sound tech. He was engaged to get married. He loved the Bothans...


He will be deeply missed :(

No, he wasn't. But does it matter? I doubt any of you knew him, and same with the other thread at the SWG forums, but that has about 2 pages by now.

Wow, the SWG forum has been having a lot of trouble lately...
A user named Moraj on the SWG forum also died about two weeks ago, killed in a car crash as well. Rather disturbing co-incedences actually.

And no, I'm not saying it's a lie, it's just rather creepy how two very similar accidents have happened to two people that both post on the SWG forums. Eerie indeed...

No, it doesn't matter. I just wanted to know if it was someone I should have met b4.

It's sad when someone dies on a forum. Or at all for that matter.

My condolences are out to the family.

And that is an eerie coincidence.

I think I knew him from the SWG Galaxies forums. My profound sympathy to his friends and relations.

Morale of the story: avoid star wars galaxy forum, it is cursed

Sorry your brother died. I bet sw galaxies competitors are killing people off because they know their games suck.

(sorry for the lack of seriousness, i am never that serious)

Well, he wasn't my brother, that was his brother's email.

True moral of the story: Dont drive drunk.
